[NYLINE] A Message from Sari Feldman, ALA President – “Libraries Transform” is Launching on October 29!

 

Dear Colleague:

On October 29th, 2015, ALA’s new public awareness campaign, Libraries Transform, will launch in Washington, D.C. and in communities and libraries around the country. Is your library on board?

 

The purpose of the new campaign is to increase public awareness of the ways that libraries of all types transform people’s lives and our communities; shift perception of the library from “obsolete” or “nice to have” to essential; and energize library professionals and external advocates to influence local, state and national decision-makers and increase support for libraries of all types.

This multi-year campaign will include national media outreach, public service announcements, a social media campaign and ongoing events such as National Library Week and Banned Books Week. It will also include attention-grabbing and curiosity-stimulating graphics and tools that you can use in your library and your community.

Won’t you join us, and be part of both the Libraries Transform campaign and this October launch?

Be sure to watch my video to learn more about Libraries Transform and visit www.librariestransform.org for more information on how to get started.

Yours,

Sari Feldman
ALA President
